As a Lead Level Artist at Ubi Qc, you'll guide the creation of the captivating 3D environments players will interact with and explore. You’ll oversee and support a talented team of level artists in transforming an artistic vision into an engaging in-game world.

You’re a well-rounded team ambassador: an expert communicator, collaboration encourager, and not to mention a skilled artist. You understand the environment art process along with its (at times, many) technical and artistic constraints. You’re able to step in to coach your team, find solutions to setbacks, and deliver feedback with confidence.

What you’ll do

  • Collaborate with other art leads and the art director to discuss and develop the game vision;
  • Coordinate and motivate level artists as they integrate and build assets into the game engine to set and dress polished scenes;
  • Organize and run regular team meetings to assign tasks, establish priorities, discuss progress, etc.;
  • Balance artistic aspects with technical constraints, maintaining quality and performance standards (poly count, memory, etc.);
  • Review integrated work, ensuring it’s aligned with the artistic direction and makes sense gameplay-wise;
  • Provide mentorship and constructive feedback to develop a consistent, quality visual style;
  • Stay up to date on best practices to keep up with the industry;
  • Participate in recruitment to build and grow your level art team.

What you bring

  • A degree in 3D Modeling or equivalent;
  • Experience in level art, modeling, texturing, lighting, image processing, or other relevant experience (leadership, a plus);
  • Knowledge of 3D software (e.g. 3DS Max or Maya) and optimization techniques*
  • Solid understanding of art fundamentals: lighting, composition, colour theory, etc.;
  • Excellent mentorship, communication, organization, time management, interpersonal, and presentation skills;
  • Flexibility and a whole lot of resourcefulness;
  • A highly collaborative, creative, and empathetic spirit;
  • A super sharp, trained eye for detail;

* Knowledge of project management software (e.g. Jira) = very nice to have!
